Gifts of Personal Property

How it works

You transfer a painting, antiques, collectibles or other personal property to National Parks Conservation Association.

NPCA may elect to hold the property and display or use it in the furtherance of its mission. NPCA may elect to sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its programs.


  • You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, provided your gift satisfies the "related use" requirements of the IRS.
  • In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift, such as a FLIP Unitrust, that benefits NPCA and provides you with income now.
  • You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now to NPCA without adversely affecting your cash flow.
